Jahi McMath, the California teen whose family fought for her medical care
after doctors declared her brain dead in December 2013, has died after she
underwent surgery in New Jersey, relatives announced Thursday.

Her mother, Nailah Winkfield, said doctors declared McMath dead from
excessive bleeding and liver failure after an operation to treat an
intestinal issue. She died on June 22, the Bay Area News Group reported.

Her case had been at the center of a national debate over brain death
since the mother refused to remove her daughter from life support. On Dec.
9, 2013, McMath went to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland for a
complex nose and throat surgery. Doctors said she had irreversible brain
damage from a lack of oxygen and suffered cardiac arrest. A coroner in
California signed a death certificate the following month.

McMath’s family gained custody of the girl’s body in 2014 and moved her to
New Jersey, the only state in the U.S. with a law that prohibits doctors
from removing brain-dead patients from ventilators over families’
religious objections.

"Jahi wasn't brain dead or any kind of dead," Winkfield said. "She was a
girl with a brain injury and she deserved to be cared for like any other
child who had a brain injury."

Winkfield acknowledged her daughter's dire medical condition but said her
Christian beliefs compelled her to fight for care because the girl
occasionally showed physical signs of life by twitching her finger or
wiggling her toe.

The death certificate in New Jersey listed the cause of death as bleeding.

"I’m devastated about losing my daughter," Winkfield told the Bay Area
News Group. "Everything I did revolved around Jahi."

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.

Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
it is.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.

It was more than her tonsils, the girl had severe snoring problems and part of her upper pallet was removed, too. It seems the family disregarded the doctor's order and gave the girl solid food after the surgery which ripped out the stitches and caused severe bleeding, which led to her coma and subsequent brain death.
